Tim Buckley: The Dream Belongs To Me (Manifesto)

Ian Penman, Uncut, July 2001

NO COMPILATION HAS ever been adequate to the task of representing Tim Buckley in his full groove, strangeness and charm; this is a man responsible for both the most ethereal music of the 60s and the most down-dirty gutbucket funk of the 70s. Both sides are represented on The Dream Belongs To Me – a hodge podge of 'unreleased' material which has a few Godlike tracks sewn amongst much that is strictly for us Timmyphiles.
